Now let's start with what martingales are and why we need them in the first place?

Horses try to protect themselves from clumsy and newbie riders who use hard, rough hands and don't know how to combine the reins with either legs or seat properly. It can feel difficult and unnatural to use your hands on a horse, which is why we use them instinctively. The positioning of the rider's hand causes discomfort for the horse, leading to conflict behaviors, including head tossing or tail lashing. Hence, we need martingales or elastic rein inserts to reduce pain and discomfort caused by inexperienced and unsteady hands. They are designed
to reduce discomfort caused by novice riders. The reigns keep a horse from moving around too much and are a perfect tool for this, but they require some training. A martingale is a metal piece that attaches to the reins with strings across the horse's chest and signals it to slow down or stop.

A martingale is a type of equipment that is frequently used by horseback riders. The device helps in keeping the animal's head down, making them less likely to throw it in the air during certain events. It is done to ward off any blows to the rider's head and prevent the horse from lifting its head too high. When a horse jumps in a round-backed position, its back will be safer. It reduces the risk of injury and protects the lower back, shoulders and hips. A martingale strap helps with both horse training and rider safety. By bracing gently, it trains the
horse to keep its head up and it protects the rider's legs in case of sudden movements. A martingale is a critical piece of riding equipment because it protects both the horse and rider and helps prevent a good performance from being disrupted by lousy head carriage habits.
